The league has been renewed. Bat Country 17

Looks like if you were in it last year, you're in it this year. We'll have to see if we lost any teams.

I've set a Live Draft for Sunday, Aug. 30th at 3:00 pm CDT (1:00 pm PDT/4:00 pm EDT).

We should have a Covid draft or at least a bingo game. Gronkowski is the center square.

It might make things interesting in the long term...  awesome, for real

Robo-draft-grader has predicted I go undefeated which of course means I will go winless.

I somehow got one of the highest grades in the draft, despite having a team full of people I have largely never heard of.

I drafted Leonard Fournette as my second running back, on the same day that the Jags released him.

Fuck.

I got a C- and I'm not sure I disagree.  Maybe Gronkowski is good for one more year, though?

I mean, I did get Aaron Rodgers, but he will probalbly sit on my bench in favor of whatever a "Kyler Murray" is.

Well I fully killed Marlon Mack and at least winged George Kittle, so I am in mid-season form. Sigh.

Viva la meaningless 3 yard runs to run the clock that push me to a tiny win.

Can I complain about losing in another league because my two running backs are Saquon Barkley and James Conner?  What a stinker!

I lost this week because all my players are terrible, despite Yahoo somehow thinking this is not the case.

It seems like there are maybe like 10 reliably good players in the league.  Everyone else is terrible, or at best, unpredictable.

Keep in mind, there has been no preseason games, and limited training camp practice, so a lot of these times are getting their first game situation practice during games. The first few weeks of the season are always a little sloppy, and these first few weeks are going to be more so.

I feel more like it is a consequence of the evolution of rule changes and how it has changed the game so much over the past 5 years or more.  Who is going to be an amazing RB this year?  WHO KNOWS!  You cannot count on anyone any longer.  Just as true for WRs and QBs.

RB's are so hit or miss because everything revolves on the passing game now, plus the CBA punishes teams who pay for mid-range vets who are on their second contract. Since RB's tend to break down right about the time they'd be signing that second contract, and thus can rarely find work unless they are still somehow healthy and productive, the RB pool is usually made up of the good 5-10 RB's who are on teams that still use them (or use them in the passing game) and a bunch of scrubs who were good in college but can't handle the wear and tear of the NFL. WR's are suffering from a similar situation - if they aren't top-tier, they will struggle to get a second contract, and most WR's don't even get competent at the position until the 3rd year. They don't have nearly the injury problems as RB's but there's a lot more of them.

Davante Adams and Aaron Rodgers  why so serious?

It is interesting how important being a receiving RB like Nick Chubb, who I did not start because I'm used to hating on the Browns and blinded by optimism for Joe Burrows...  swamp poop
